Ver con mis propios ojos los Gorilas de Montaña fue una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida. Sin embargo están en peligro de extinción y solo quedan 1004. 🦍 Creo que hay que darle extrema importancia a estas situaciones, ya que junto con otros problemas como el cambio climático, están pasando frente a nosotros y no le damos la prioridad que requieren. Si no hacemos nada, solo nos quedará lamentar en un par de años.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #volcanoesnationalpark #kigali #rwanda #nyungwe #lakekivu #kivulake #kivu #virunga #virungalodge #musanze #africa #visitafrica #visitrwanda #mountaingorilla #gorilademontaña #gorila at Rwanda

Its not my best photo, but its one of my sentimental favorites from my first Virunga NP gorilla trek in all the way back in 2010.... Bagambe from the Rugendo Family played like a curious youngster for the entire hour. 13 Mountain Gorilla treks later and I still have never seen mountain gorillas in a wide expanse of bamboo forest like my first time. It changed my view of travel for the rest of my life. Tourism is officially open again to @virunganationalpark so I encourage everyone to take a look at visiting this extremely special place, there is nowhere else like it anywhere in the world. 🦍🌋🇨🇩 at Virunga National Park

VIRUNGA IS THE INCREDIBLE TRUE STORY OF A GROUP OF BRAVE PEOPLE RISKING THEIR LIVES TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE IN A PART OF AFRICA THE WORLD'S FORGOTTEN - In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places on Earth and home to the planet’s last remaining mountain gorillas. In this wild, but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers - including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a caretaker of orphan gorillas and a dedicated conservationist - protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources.

The night sky from Virunga Lodge is simply brilliant. In the absence of ambient light, watch thousands of stars appear - brighter than you will ever see anywhere again. | Photo by Ashley Turner, @tinyatlasquarterly at Virunga Lodge (Volcanoes Safaris)

During my trip top to bottom in Africa, I made one of the most incredible experience ever. This picture was taken in the Virunga National Park ( Democratic Republic of Congo ). When I was there is 2015, there were left in the entire world 841 mountain gorillas. The emotion was incredible. Especially the meeting with this great Silverback in their own habitat. #africa #photooftheday #likeforlike #photographer #photography #photo #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #trip #picoftheday #picture #pic #pictureoftheday #likeforlikes #likeforfollow #likeforlike #virunga #congo #nofilter #like4like #instagram #instagood #instalike at Virunga National Park

Super proud that The Elephant Queen, which I am part of, won the Cinema for Peace International Green Award. Past winners such as Virunga, the Ivory Game and Racing extinction make this a truly epic club to be a part of. at Tsavo East National Park, Kenya

I love 🦍, fascinating creatures ~ I personally don't like chimpanzees & orangutans ・・・ #Repost @natgeo (@get_repost) Photos by @brentstirton | Great news from #Virunga #NationalPark, Democratic Republic of #Congo: It's reopening for #tourism on February 15. This is absolutely one of the most unique national parks in the world. For me it’s the best mountain #gorilla experience out there, not to mention the cheapest and the most authentic. The Kibumba #camp will reopen in the gorilla sector, and tourists will once again be able to see these incredible animals. When a magnificent silverback looks directly at you, it is unquestionably a life-changing experience for your comprehension of animal intelligence. #Nyiragongo, the largest active #volcano lake in the world, is also reopening. You can overnight up at 11,000 feet and watch dawn break over the rim. I don’t have the words to describe how primal and beautiful the view is over the surrounding park. Chigera Island in Lake Kivu is also reopening; this place offers a private island experience, allowing you to look back at Goma and the active volcano sector with a view like no other. This is truly a different #travel experience, and you are supporting people who do the some of the most difficult work in the #conservation world.

A charismatic ape. After a remake of « The Thinker » (shown in one of my previous posts) this gorilla decided to go all Mona Lisa on us. Cheeky and very curious juvenile who kept trying to come closer 🦍 at Virunga National Park

Virunga Fauna. Gorilla. #stillalive Much of my illustration revenue last year went to protecting the Virunga National Park and the mountain gorillas living there. The rangers who risk their lives every day need good equipment, and the survivors of slain rangers need support. Even small monthly amounts can help.
